We asked friends and strangers what a "must do" was during our visit to Boston. The "North End" popped up in every single recommendation. We were not disappointed. We were in Boston for 4 days following a cruise, and we visited the North End twice....More

All our friends recommended little Italy. We thought walking around was ok but the food we ate three different places low quality and service sucked

If you have a Fallout 4 fan gamer in your house, take him out for a walk through the red trail and get him thrilled with history when he recognizes the church seen in the game. Then he´ll come to understand that reallity overtakes fiction.

Boston;s historic North End is near the waterfront and also has lots of great Italian restaurants. A walking tour or trolley tour is recommended for those mot used to city driving.

Take a nice stroll through this beautiful, historic area filled with parks, shops and great Italian restaurants - lots of them! Make sure you walk to Mikes Pastry Shop. What a great way to spend an evening in Boston.

North End
Wandering around Boston’s North End can feel like
being transported to Europe. Stroll down Hanover and
Salem streets for the finest Italian restaurants,
bakeries, cafes, and a few boutique shops. Take part
in the big debate as to whether Modern Pastry or
Mike’s serves a better cannoli. Before your food coma
sets in, make sure to stop by historic Paul Revere’s
home, and follow the Freedom Trail to Old North Church

I love the Harborside Inn, as it's a quick walk over there and a great location.

Sorry to be so late with this response, been traveling :-) If you're looking for a true "lobster bake" you won't find that at a restaurant. Those types of things need to be catered. There are lines most everywhere unless... More
